One of the largest Dwarf Brazillian bunches I've ever gotten-30 pounds! Good thing I'm vending at my local farmers market this weekend. No way just two of us can eat them all, especially with 2 massive bunches of Williams on the way and a freezer already full of frozen fruit.

The potted ones on the right are TCs of Pisang Raja and Red Kru that are waiting for a spot in the yard to open up.

Rob, I have bunch envy! BTW, are the two potted TC's from UH or somewhere else?

They're from Aloha Tropicals in CA. Would love to get some from UH, but I don't know if they do it at UH Hilo. Also, I'm not interested in or already have what they have available.

25lbs Williams bunch harvested today. These are going to be sold at my farmers market this weekend along with one of the pups.

Small Ice Cream bunch accidentally harvested today. They lean heavily and it was propped up, but digging out a pup it shifted and fell. Probably could have used a few more weeks. Flower emerged a few days shy of 3 months ago. 4 hands, 34 bananas. Destined for freezing to make Ice Cream banana ice cream!

Another bunch of Williams harvested today. Likely to be harvesting more Ice Cream and patiently waiting for Gros Michel and Sucrier which look very close to ready.

Looks like the real thing Tony. Look like blue-ish skins to me!

Real Ice Creams are one of the varieties that are pretty easy to get here in Hawaii. A local nursery TCs them (I'm assuming) and supplies them statewide. Regularly at our local Home Depot. Have noticed when they first emerge they aren't particularly obviously blue.

Someone, not me, harvested my huge Gros Michel bunch that I've been waiting on since it flowered April 13th. It's taken me 4 years since planting to get a bunch this big. It faced the street where I live on the main road in my subdivision. Stupid banana thief!

That's the pits. Did any of your neighbors get a glimpse of the thief?

Sorry to hear about that! Pretty sad to steal fruit. Maybe someone new what the plant was that lived by you?

Yeah, that is the 'local' mindset - what is yours is mine, too, if I want it and you're not around. I'd recommend a 'bunch bag' next time around. The thief was probably eyeing it for a while, and was just waiting for the right moment.

No witnesses and discovered it on my way to the airport so no time to ask anyone. People can be so lame. But managed to cut down my other bunch next to it that wasn't ready but I don't want that to disappear too! Most of my biggest bunches face the same main street, so I'm thinking booby traps, lol!

I knew a guy that had 2 Ae Ae pups planted in the front yard.

Just so every one could enjoy them too.

And one day the were gone during the night.:(

All my fruit trees are behind the fence. Except the Jaboticaba and the Fuyu. They are too weird looking to get raided.

And naners that tilt towards the fence get trained upright with rope when the flower shows up.

Fact of life!
